Thanks very much for posting this update. I'm forking LSPosed/MagiskOnWSA so I have the Play Store in WSA. I got WSA updated to the build released yesterday by changing the workflow to "Insider fast":

Hi @fz789
I tried to trace LSPosed/MagiskOnWSA in GitHub but could not succeed.

could you guide me through so that I can get the Google Play store installed on my Windows11 System for app installation

Thanks in advance......

unfortunately, the LSPosed/MagiskOnWSA was removed from GitHub. There are other forks up there but I don't know anything about them, you might want to search for "WSA" on GitHub, but be sure to read through it all carefully before forking anyone else's work.
